A Finnish film about an unusual habit. Watch The Tongueling.
Wooden knocks are echoing in a frozen landscape when a lonesome man is searching for a tongueling of his own.
The Tongueling is simple, breath-taking and offers no easy solutions to decode its message. Sound design is paramount to the film, while the parade of tongues seems so flat and two-dimensional, compared to the main character's search for visual depth behind the trees in perspective.
